Langley High School Credit Recovery Program - Summer 2021

This summer, Langley High School will be partnering with McLean High School who will be hosting credit recovery for our students who receive a final grade of No Mark (NM). NM is being used this year in lieu of an F to limit the impact of virtual learning on a student’s grade point average. However, students will still need to recover the course credit. Langley, McLean and Oakton High Schools will be combining credit recovery programs. This is to ensure we are able to offer all courses needed by students. McLean High School will host the program.

Credit Recovery offers opportunities for students to recover course credit(s), prepare to retake an SOL test, prepare to take a WorkKeys test, or develop academic language and skills necessary for success in future credit-bearing English and mathematics classes. Here is a table of important dates for each session:

Each school day starts at 8:00 am and ends at 1:00 pm. Grab and go breakfasts and lunches will be available and free for all students who attend credit recovery.

Additionally, we will be offering ESOL Numeracy and Literacy courses for our English Language Learners who may need additional support after the past school year. Langley High School administrators and counselors will be reaching out to families soon with more information.

If you have any questions regarding credit recovery, please reach out to your student’s counselor. Counselor contact information is below.


Here is the contact information for Langley’s administration for credit recovery.

AP Digital Exams (taken at-home) are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 18 - see full AP exam schedule here.

Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL – Adjusted Deadline!!

New Deadlines:

Underclassman - Friday, June 4

We are writing to share an update regarding the secondary grading policy changes that have been adopted to help our students achieve a strong finish to the school year.

FCPS is adjusting the grading policy for the 2020-21 school year to ensure students are not penalized by the challenges brought on by pandemic learning. 

Key policy changes for high school students are listed below:

  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’s grade for the year. Teachers will apply this in their grading practices for each class.
  • Use of No Mark, “NM”, instead of “F” grades for all courses. This will be automatically applied for any course in which a student receives an “F.”
  • Allowing high school students to select a mark of “P” for pass for up to two courses for which a passing grade is earned for the final mark. As referenced above, for the 2020-21 school year, final marks of “F” will automatically receive a No Mark, “NM.” 
    • Action Needed: Should you wish to designate one or more courses as Pass - No Mark status, the linked form must be submitted to your school counselor by the deadlines listed above.  Please note that we have extended the previous deadline to allow more time for students and families to gain more information about their fourth quarter progress before making the decision to request a “P”. 
    • The course title is required on the form, but the course number may be left blank if you do not have it available.

Students and families are encouraged to carefully consider the option for Pass. Additional information including translated forms, considerations,  and frequently asked questions are available at the following link: https://www.fcps.edu/academics/grading-and-reporting/secondary

Student Intention Forms for 2021-2022  | Only for those families NOT returning.

A typed parent/guardian name on the Parent Signature line is acceptable.  Student ID Number may be left blank.  Save the completed form, attach it to an email and send at MJGratz@fcps.edu.

Langley High School Credit Recovery Program - Summer 2021

This summer, Langley High School will be partnering with McLean High School who will be hosting credit recovery for our students who receive a final grade of No Mark (NM). NM is being used this year in lieu of an F to limit the impact of virtual learning on a student’s grade point average. However, students will still need to recover the course credit. Langley, McLean and Oakton High Schools will be combining credit recovery programs. This is to ensure we are able to offer all courses needed by students. McLean High School will host the program.

Credit Recovery offers opportunities for students to recover course credit(s), prepare to retake an SOL test, prepare to take a WorkKeys test, or develop academic language and skills necessary for success in future credit-bearing English and mathematics classes. Here is a table of important dates for each session:

Each school day starts at 8:00 am and ends at 1:00 pm. Grab and go breakfasts and lunches will be available and free for all students who attend credit recovery.

Additionally, we will be offering ESOL Numeracy and Literacy courses for our English Language Learners who may need additional support after the past school year. Langley High School administrators and counselors will be reaching out to families soon with more information.

If you have any questions regarding credit recovery, please reach out to your student’s counselor. Counselor contact information is below.


Here is the contact information for Langley’s administration for credit recovery.

On June 30 of each year, balances for all graduating seniors will no longer report in MySchoolBucks.  Food and Nutrition Services will have access to balance files and if parents have not requested a transfer or refund by this date, they may still do so up to one year (to June 30 of the following  year) using the above methods.

Parents are required to log into www.MySchoolBucks.com and from the homepage dashboard and click “Remove Student." Click the box under “Remove?” for the graduating student’s name.

The information above can be found on the FCPS website and will aid you in requesting a refund from your child’s MySchoolBucks meal account. 

Action Requested: Help save trees and FCPS $$ on postage by opting in to receive “Paperless” Report Cards (that can be printed through ParentVUE)

Parents/Guardians may opt into “Go Paperless” for report cards by following the below instructions:

  • Parents/Guardians can take advantage of the paperless option, by logging into ParentVUE, then going to “My Account” and selecting "Go Paperless!". This is the only way to keep a paper report card from being generated for students at the secondary level. All parents who share the same address as the student must have a SIS ParentVUE account and must select the paperless option.

Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL – Adjusted Deadline!!

New Deadlines:

Seniors - Monday, May 17

Underclassman - Friday, June 4

We are writing to share an update regarding the secondary grading policy changes that have been adopted to help our students achieve a strong finish to the school year.

FCPS is adjusting the grading policy for the 2020-21 school year to ensure students are not penalized by the challenges brought on by pandemic learning. 

Key policy changes for high school students are listed below:

  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’s grade for the year. Teachers will apply this in their grading practices for each class.
  • Use of No Mark, “NM”, instead of “F” grades for all courses. This will be automatically applied for any course in which a student receives an “F.”
  • Allowing high school students to select a mark of “P” for pass for up to two courses for which a passing grade is earned for the final mark. As referenced above, for the 2020-21 school year, final marks of “F” will automatically receive a No Mark, “NM.” 
    • Action Needed: Should you wish to designate one or more courses as Pass - No Mark status, the linked form must be submitted to your school counselor by the deadlines listed above.  Please note that we have extended the previous deadline to allow more time for students and families to gain more information about their fourth quarter progress before making the decision to request a “P”. 
    • The course title is required on the form, but the course number may be left blank if you do not have it available.

Students and families are encouraged to carefully consider the option for Pass. Additional information including translated forms, considerations,  and frequently asked questions are available at the following link: https://www.fcps.edu/academics/grading-and-reporting/secondary

Be Prepared for AP Digital Exams!

AP Digital Exams (taken at-home) are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 18 - see full AP exam schedule here.

All AP students taking digital exams have been provided information by their AP teachers about necessary steps to ensure they are ready for their digital exams. Students may use their FCPS-provided laptop for testing OR their personal computer (tablets and phones are not suitable devices for testing).

Specifically, there are four steps students need to take – 3 steps before the exam day, and one on the date of their digital exam. See the graphic below and the link that follows for additional information on these 4 required steps for digital exams (regardless of testing device).

Four Steps to Take Digital Exams

In the offhand chance that a problem occurs during digital testing, students will have the opportunity to request a makeup digital exam. Click here for more information about requirements and procedures should this information be necessary.

For specific questions about your student’s AP Exam(s), please first check with your student and check on Schoology for all information that has already been shared by the specific AP teacher(s). If questions remain, please contact the specific AP teacher.

For general AP testing questions not answered by the above information and/or all information provided by AP teachers, please contact AP Testing Coordinator Katie Robinson kerobinson1@fcps.edu or AP Academic Coordinator Ryan Jackson rnjackson@fcps.edu.

For all other AP Information, visit the College Board AP website

Langley High School Credit Recovery Program - Summer 2021

This summer, Langley High School will be partnering with McLean High School who will be hosting credit recovery for our students who receive a final grade of No Mark (NM). NM is being used this year in lieu of an F to limit the impact of virtual learning on a student’s grade point average. However, students will still need to recover the course credit. Langley, McLean and Oakton High Schools will be combining credit recovery programs. This is to ensure we are able to offer all courses needed by students. McLean High School will host the program.

Credit Recovery offers opportunities for students to recover course credit(s), prepare to retake an SOL test, prepare to take a WorkKeys test, or develop academic language and skills necessary for success in future credit-bearing English and mathematics classes. Here is a table of important dates for each session:

Each school day starts at 8:00 am and ends at 1:00 pm. Grab and go breakfasts and lunches will be available and free for all students who attend credit recovery.

Additionally, we will be offering ESOL Numeracy and Literacy courses for our English Language Learners who may need additional support after the past school year. Langley High School administrators and counselors will be reaching out to families soon with more information.

If you have any questions regarding credit recovery, please reach out to your student’s counselor. Counselor contact information is below.


Here is the contact information for Langley’s administration for credit recovery.

Did You Know…The term “Languishing” was coined by a sociologist named Corey Keyes, who was struck that many people who weren’t depressed also weren’t thriving. 

Languishing is a sense of stagnation and emptiness. It feels as if you’re muddling through your days, looking at your life through a foggy windshield. And it might be the dominant emotion of 2021. Here is the full NY Times article.

Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL

Prior to Spring Break, Dr. Brabrand also released updated end-of-year grading policies. That letter can be found in its entirety here

Key options for high school students are:

  • Use of No Mark (NM) instead of F grades for all courses. In these cases,students would not have an F factored into their GPA. A “NM” would appear on the transcript in lieu of an F.  However, they would still be required to retake the course if it was a graduation requirement. The course could be taken over the summer, if offered, or the following school year. In addition, students would not be permitted to move on to the next level of a course if the “NM” is not rectified. 
  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’sgrade for the year. Collaborative teams will discuss if a final exam opportunity will  be made available to students.  If a final exam is offered, it can only serve to improve a student’s grade, not hinder it. 
  • Allowing students/families to choose a mark of “P” (pass) instead of passing letter grades (C’s or D’s for example) as their final mark for up to two courses. Families who wish to pursue this option must turn in thisform to the Student Services Department by May 10, 2021. Any families who want to learn more about the impact of a “P” for college acceptance, NCAA clearinghouse, or other matters can visit the Secondary Grading and Reporting website FAQ portion found here.

If you are interested in one or more of the options above, please reach out to your student’s counselor to further discuss.

Nominate a Junior for Outstanding Service Award

Do you know a junior whose dedication to volunteerism is exemplary? The PTSA Awards for Outstanding Service honors Langley juniors who have demonstrated excellent service achievement and an ongoing sense of commitment to a worthy cause at LHS or the community at large. The winners receive a certificate and monetary award. Nominations can be submitted by teachers, peers, parents, coaches, guidance counselors, and club and organization sponsors. Self-nominations are allowed, too! The deadline is Fri, May 7. Click here to nominate a student.

Need a graduation gift? Teacher gift? A thank you to a great coach or mentor? Give a gift that lasts -- a leaf on the Legacy Tree! You choose the perfect engraving! 

The Legacy Tree is growing in Langley's front entrance (across from the office) for all to enjoy for years to come. Donating a leaf (copper $50, silver $100, gold $200) or bird or acorn ($500), is a great way to pay tribute to your favorite people.  

Funds raised will be used to landscape the third (and final!) courtyard in Langley. The more metallic leaves on the Legacy Tree, the more actual leaves there will be in the courtyards. 

To order your leaf -- or leaves! -- visit the PTSA website . Questions? Email chrissielavin1@gmail.com .

Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL

Prior to Spring Break, Dr. Brabrand also released updated end-of-year grading policies. That letter can be found in its entirety here

Key options for high school students are:

  • Use of No Mark (NM) instead of F grades for all courses. In these cases,students would not have an F factored into their GPA. A “NM” would appear on the transcript in lieu of an F.  However, they would still be required to retake the course if it was a graduation requirement. The course could be taken over the summer, if offered, or the following school year. In addition, students would not be permitted to move on to the next level of a course if the “NM” is not rectified. 
  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’sgrade for the year. Collaborative teams will discuss if a final exam opportunity will  be made available to students.  If a final exam is offered, it can only serve to improve a student’s grade, not hinder it. 
  • Allowing students/families to choose a mark of “P” (pass) instead of passing letter grades (C’s or D’s for example) as their final mark for up to two courses. Families who wish to pursue this option must turn in thisform to the Student Services Department by May 10, 2021. Any families who want to learn more about the impact of a “P” for college acceptance, NCAA clearinghouse, or other matters can visit the Secondary Grading and Reporting website FAQ portion found here.

If you are interested in one or more of the options above, please reach out to your student’s counselor to further discuss.  

SAVE THE DATE for Langley High School Virtual Summer Math Camp! Mark your calendars now for July 5th-16th and July 19th -30th for two great weeks of summer math camp offerings!

Action Requested: Help save trees and FCPS $$ on postage by opting in to receive “Paperless” Report Cards (that can be printed through ParentVUE)

Parents/Guardians may opt into “Go Paperless” for report cards by following the below instructions:

  • Parents/Guardians can take advantage of the paperless option, by logging into ParentVUE, then going to “My Account” and selecting "Go Paperless!". This is the only way to keep a paper report card from being generated for students at the secondary level. All parents who share the same address as the student must have a SIS ParentVUE account and must select the paperless option.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 3 months 1 week ago

Greetings Saxons,

Another week is in the books in Saxon Country. Before we start this week’s celebration, I would like to address a situation which created anxiety for some of our students. This week’s Langley Links lessons were a two-part segment which related to microaggression, allyship and the discrimination members of the AAPI community have faced throughout American history. Tuesday’s lesson began with a student survey. A number of parents and students took time to share some students found the survey troubling. Please know, that as we continue to work to make Langley a safe space for all, it was never our intention to make students feel uncomfortable. For this, I apologize. Based upon the feedback and comments many of you shared, we have reflected and implemented additional steps to ensure this mistake is not repeated. I thank you for your understanding.

Our students continue to shine this spring. Great things are happening on the stage, court, and field. As the talents and skills of our students are unmatched, let’s get this party rolling!!

Congratulations to the following teams which competed in the National Japan Bowl.
Level 4
Sophie Galova
Nava Berwick
Claire (Seohyun) Yoon

Level 3- This team made the finals and finished 3rd nationally.
ElaineZou
Melody (Pachia) Vang
Audrey McKnight

Please join me in giving the following volleyball players a round of applause!
Nina Kernan- Named 1st Team All Northern Region
Lauren Sung - Named All Northern Region Defensive Specialist of the Year
Amelia Kim -Player of the Year for the Northern Region
Ijenna Mere- 2nd Team All Northern Region

A shoutout to our Saxon Theatre. They earned 4 Superiors and are District Champions!

Congratulations to our Boys Golf team. For the fourth consecutive year, they are Northern Region Champions!

Student Spotlight- Kelly Chinn

Kelly is a senior who is a member of our golf team. During this school year, Kelly has received numerous national recognitions. He earned the Byron Nelson Award and was named Rolex Junior Player of the Year. Additionally, in January, we was named the 2020 Virginia State Golf Association Player of the Year. Kelly, congratulations, on receiving the well-deserved awards. Saxon Country is proud of you.

I wish everyone wellness and a fabulous weekend,

Did You Know…Synthetic cannabinoids are sometimes misleadingly called synthetic marijuana (or fake weed), and they are often marketed as safe, legal alternatives to that drug. In fact, they are not safe and may affect the brain much more powerfully than marijuana; their actual effects can be unpredictable and, in some cases, more dangerous or even life-threatening. For more information about synthetic marijuana visit NIDA.

Langley’s newly revamped and all virtual Career Connections is excited to announce a line-up that includes over 35 remarkable professionals!

This virtual event will be held Monday, April 12 from 10:00AM to 1:00PM via Blackboard Collaborate. Please encourage your student(s) to sign up via Schoology using access code: VF6S-QMJ3-QCK53. Just by signing up, they will be automatically be registered for a chance to win a gift card!
